A home inspection is a visual and physical examination of your home from the roof down to the foundation. Whether you are a prospective homebuyer or selling your home, you will be made aware of any issues or problems that you can ask the seller to fix prior to closing or you can have addressed before listing your home.
What Is a Home Inspection?
During a home inspection, a trained professional will come into your home or potential future home and inspect it thoroughly from top to bottom. You should feel comfortable coming prepared with questions you may have before they start the inspection. The end goal is to provide you with results, and recommendations, and bring specific issues to your attention. It usually takes between 2 and 4 hours, depending on the size of your home and specific elements that need special attention.
A home inspection covers a wide variety of elements in the interior and the exterior of your home. This includes:
- heating system
- HVAC/central air conditioning system
- electrical system
- windows and doors
- ceiling and floors
- special structural elements
After your home inspection, your inspector will analyze their findings including any samples being tested in a professional laboratory. The inspection will conclude with them presenting their findings, results, and recommendations.
Why Is It Important to Do a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is crucial to make sure you and your family learn as much as you can about a home before you buy it. It can help identify major issues you may not notice while viewing a home. It also may uncover potential major repairs the home may need to be factored into your budget. Most importantly, whether you are buying a new home or getting your current home evaluated, it is important to make sure you are in a safe and healthy environment.
There are many reasons to do a home inspection besides making sure your home is safe. You can also use the home inspection results to renegotiate the final price of the home if they are found before the closing date. If you are selling your home, a home inspection will bring areas to your attention that may need to be fixed or upgraded on your end before the house is priced on the market. Home inspections are also ideally done every few years when you own your home to protect your investment in your property. They also bring to light any potential issues so you can address them before they turn into major repairs.
When Should I Do a Home Inspection?
A home inspection is essential when you are buying a home, selling a home, or evaluating the state of your current home. Purchasing a home is usually one of the largest investments you make in your life. Selling your home to purchase another is likely one of the biggest transactions you will ever undergo.
Before Selling a Home:
If you are ready to sell your home, getting a home inspection done before listing the house can be a major benefit. First, it will help you and your real estate agent better decide on a listing price. Second, it will give you sound peace of mind about that price when potential buyers try to negotiate. Additionally, it will give you the ability to consider making certain repairs or upgrades before selling your home to make a bigger profit.
Before Buying a Home:
Second, a home inspection is essential to do when you are in the process of buying a home. This generally happens after the seller accepts your offer, but before you close on the house. This inspection will make sure you are aware of every issue and potential issue before you finalize the purchase of a home. Even if the house is new construction, a full inspection of your house is still necessary.
Before 1-Year Home Warranty Expires
After you buy a new home, you usually have a time period (usually one year) to find and report issues to your insurance. This is a good time to have your home inspected again to find new issues found since your initial inspection.
To Ensure Good Home Maintenance
It is also important to get a home inspection every 3 to 5 years you live in your home. This is important for basic good home maintenance and to keep up the investment you’ve made in your house. Additionally, routine home inspections allow you to find and correct potential issues before they become major repairs.
